Ulcers,eczma & Cradle Cap?

Recommended Posts

How common is it to suffer from mouth ulcers and eczma with celiac?

It is only slight eczma (not dh) on his ankles but is very itchy.

Plus he has what I think is 'cradle cap' and has had for a LONG time.

Any advice is gratefully recieved.

I know that I frustrate some of the site members by my need to have my 10yr old son 'diagnosed' with celiac before putting him on the gluten free diet. I understand this.

Without a diagnosis he is unable to join the Coeliac (as it is spelt here) Society

Or recieve follow-up Dietician appointments (free through health care)

Or recieve ongoing support through the hospital

Or recieve discounts on gluten-free items

Plus his school say they need medical clarification in order to cater to his celiac.

He is awaiting an appointment for a bowel biopsy. A 'diagnosis' will make managing his diet a lot easier.

However, if after testing I am unable to get a 'diagnosis', I will be putting him on a gluten-free diet to see if it helps him anyway without the above help.

Peta,

I have not been diagnosed as of yet, my blood work is in the system as we speak lol!! I had exzema very badly as a child and my children all have exzema with the exception of my daughter whom has a dermatitis herpitifomas type of rash quite frequently!! I also have mouth ulcers like you would not believe. I used to have canker sores growing up pretty badly, but after I had my kids I started getting what I call mouth craters (because the ulcers are so darn big) they prevent me from eating and they end up being these huge holes and they can run in a line all along the middle inside of my cheak or they can take up a huge portion of the inside of one side of my lower lip. They are enormous. My daughter got diagnosed with hand, foot and mouth a few times because she had craters in her mouth but she never had any hand or foot symptoms and no one else around us got them, so I'm convinced they were from the Celiac. Ug I have all the symptoms and I'm sure I'll test negative and I just can't deal with that stress right now. I just want answers at this point!!
